TECLA EDITIONS

 

Mauro Giuliani:

The Complete Works, in 39 volumes

Detailed list of contents of Volumes 25-32, the complete guitar concertos

Giuliani composed three concertos for guitar, opus numbers 30, 36, and 70. The concerto op. 30 in A is the first and most famous of them.  All three are presented in this Tecla edition in facsimiles of the first editions, parts only, no score.

Giuliani's guitar concerto op. 30 in A.  This concerto exists in versions for guitar and full orchestra, for guitar and string quartet, and in Diabelli's arrangement for terz guitar and piano.

The three volumes for this concerto in this Tecla series are:

  • Volume 25: the version for guitar and full orchestra, in A.  There are separate parts for the guitar and for all the orchestral parts.  No score. The guitar is a normal guitar (not a terz guitar).
  • Volume 26: the version for guitar and string quartet, in A (same guitar part as in Volume 25).
  • Volume 27: the arrangement of the concerto which Diabelli made for terz guitar and piano. The guitar part here is a terz guitar so although it is written in A it actually sounds in C and the piano part is in C.

 

Giuliani's guitar concerto op. 36 in A.  This concerto op. 36, unlike the concertos opp. 30 and 70, is not known to have existed in a version for full orchestra, but only in this version for guitar and strings, which can be performed either with a string orchestra or simply with a string quartet.

The two volumes for this concerto in this Tecla series are:

  • Volume 28: the version for guitar and string quartet. The guitar is a normal guitar (not a terz guitar).
  • Volume 29: the arrangement of the concerto which Diabelli made for terz guitar and piano.

 

Giuliani's guitar concerto op. 70 in F.  This concerto exists in versions for guitar and full orchestra, for guitar and string quartet, and in Diabelli's arrangement for terz guitar and piano.

The three volumes for this concerto in this Tecla series are:

  • Volume 30: the version for guitar and full orchestra.  There are separate parts for the guitar and for all the orchestral parts.  No score. The guitar part is for terz guitar, written in D but actually sounding in F, and the orchestral parts are in F.
  • Volume 31: the version for guitar and string quartet (same guitar part as in Volume 30).
  • Volume 32: the arrangement of the concerto which Diabelli made for terz guitar and piano.
